Members of FPC shall be individually responsible for their own family members' and guests' compliance with the rules of the group in addition to any rules of selected locations (pavilions, campgrounds, etc.) of FPC events while in attendance at those events and or campouts. FPC shall not be held responsible for misconduct by individuals in attendance at FPC campouts or events - whether they are a member or not. Any FPC member/guest that is asked to leave a campground by its management/owners or law officers while attending an official FPC event may be subject to dismissal from FPC if the cause and actions leading to said removal could be considered detrimental to FPC or its membership.
A member family may, at any time, invite guests or guest families to join in FPC campouts. The member assumes responsibility to convey to their guests that responsible behavior is expected at all times. This includes but is not limited to the Rules and Regulations of the Campground selected, in addition to any rules and regulations of FPC in effect at that time. If your guests are camping in there own camper and attend two or more events in a twelve month period they will need to become members of the club.
FPC Members are responsible to make their reservations in accordance to the posted reservation requirements of the campouts they wish to attend. Event Calendars are subject to change and as a member you are ultimately responsible for reading the event information and making timely reservations. Time is of the essence in responding to campouts and dinner information so access to the Discussion Board directly or through another member or source is needed to keep current on the activities of the group.
Any person attending a FPC Campout or event - whether a member or not - shall attempt - at all times - to conduct themselves as 'ambassadors' of FPC, keeping in mind that nonmembers, not knowing whether an individual is a member or not, will perceive them everyone to be members, and judge the conduct of the group by any individual in attendance at a campout and or event. This of course being more evident when wearing FPC apparel on a campout. It is conducive to the good will of FPC, that each of us remind ourselves that our own conduct reflects on the whole of FPC's image to others so we encourage our members/family/guests to make every effort to be 'neighborly' to all other campers.
